Hi folks,

I'm new in the FreeTDS world, and I'm building my first app with it.
But I'm having a problem whit the "dbopen" function. When the app call
it, the function return an error and the message: "FreeTDS: db-lib:
exiting because client error handler returned 0 for msgno 20009".

Does anyone knows what this error message mean??

---------------------------------- My code -------------------------

if (dbinit() == FAIL)
	fprintf(stderr, "page1.c %d: dbinit() failed\n",  __LINE__);

if ((login = dblogin()) == FAIL)
	fprintf(stderr, "ERROR! dblogin() page1.c.\n");
	return FALSE;

DBSETLUSER(login, login_t.username);
DBSETLPWD(login, login_t.password);

if (gethostname(hostname, max_len) == 0)
	DBSETLHOST(login, hostname);

/* works fine until here, then I got the error here, not even enter in
the if statement */
if ((dbconn = dbopen(login, DBSERVER)) == NULL)
	fprintf(stderr, "ERROR! dbopen() page1.c.\n");
	return FALSE;
